Estate Notes

Le Fonti's Vito Arturo is a sophisticated Tuscan red oozing quality and refinement, which just keeps getting better with every vintage.

The two-hectare Vito Arturo vineyard produces Le Fonti’s finest grapes from a fantastic situation renowned for producing opulent wines with satin-like tannins. A phenomenal wine, especially given its very modest price.

Le Fonti was bought in the mid 1950s by the Imberti family and the current owners, Franca and Ferdinando also manage a business in Milan but actively follow the work at the estate. They have invested heavily and replanted solely with Sangiovese in the 1990s, and in their search for excellence they appointed young agronomist, Lorenzo Bernini and employ the famed and talented oenologist Paolo Caciorgna. It is particularly warmer here than other Chianti growing areas such as Panzano or Radda, the berries ripen earlier and are perhaps more fleshy and generous.

Reviews

Beautiful mineral purity giving freshness to ripe black cherry, red fruits and kirsch with high notes of violet and rose, exotic spice, and savoury undertones of sweet leather, truffle and dark chocolate. Sumptuous velvety palate, richly concentrated, with fresh balance, deep mineral base, and layered fruit and tannins ; large macerated development with lush fruit, finishing very long and fresh. Superb.
